Enerjazz to conclude concert series

EmerjazzWhitehall’s summer concert series will be coming to a close on Friday, Aug. 22 at 7 p.m. and to say it will be going out ‘big’ might be an understatement.
The final band of the summer concert series, known as Ener Jazz, is an 18 member ‘big band.’ The Poultney, Vt.-based group will be the first and only band of their genre to make a stop at Riverside Veteran’s Memorial Park for this summer’s festivities, so for those who have been waiting to hear the horns and the sweet sounds of jazz and big band jams, now is the time.
The members of Ener Jazz call themselves “Vermont’s high energy big band” and supply traditional big band music, as well as jazz style covers of some popular tunes from other genres.
With five saxophonists, four trombonists, four trumpeters, one pianist, one guitarist, one bassist, one drummer and a vocalist; this band boasts quite the wide array of musical talents.
The eighteen members who make up Ener Jazz are Dave McKenzie, Pat Roberts, Kenny Cifone Mike Durkee and Rusty Wescott on the trumpets; Bill Brislin, Paul Sutherland, Todd Jonz and Glenn Giles playing the trombones; Andy Miskavage, Jeff Rusik, Harry Drum, Mike Lenox and Scott Lobdell on the saxophone; Martha Welch supplies vocals; Michael Corn plays the guitar; Ellen Sutherland plays the bass; and Rob Zollman is the drummer.
The band was formed in 2008 and the band carries a working book of over 150 charts from varying artists, including classics from the likes of Duke Ellington, to more contemporary songs from artists like Michael Buble.
Ener Jazz cites their mission as “playing your favorite hits of the Swing Era, in their original style, using the original arraignments whenever possible.”
As always, attendance to the concert is free and attendees are encouraged to bring their own blanket, towel or chair to sit on while enjoying the show.
